People go to live sports games and concerts to be part of the mind-numbing craze, but new virtual reality developments could grant people the same kind of excitement within their homes. Japanese telecoms company NTT partnered up with Dwango to introduce a VR headset that enables people to experience everything they would expect from a live event.

Connected to existing head-mounted displays (HMDs), this 360-degree broadcast video system allows personalized viewing, a way for people to appreciate different angles of the replicated event. Cloud processes and machinations guarantees high-quality and realistic streamed visuals, regardless of where viewers shift their gaze.

The goal of this project is to optimize both the video and and audio quality, which has been crucial area of target for broadcast technology. This VR system is currently under testing, and further developments are highly favorable depending on the trial results.
